Not sure what to say about this. Perhaps playing as an imperial would be nice in some manner, I was thinking possibly as a legacy reward (say, you reach level 50 with a character and gain the option to then play as an imperial, or even on the imperial's side against the three factions) though with this they've pretty much destroyed the whole concept of the alliances by allowing you to buy the option to play any race in any alliance. We'll have Orsimer joining the Aldmeri Dominion and such. Definitely a money grab here. Buy the standard game and be limited, or pay extra. /sigh

Dat trailer though.

And there's always some deluxe edition with goodies, and it's always a money grab. I'll probably just buy a standard edition.

Edit: the whole "join any Alliance no matter your race" thing is incredibly lame. By that I mean INCREDIBLY in caps. It's defying the entire background of the story. Disapoint :|

Triskele, I expected more patience out of you.

"PLAY AS AN IMPERIAL

Become an Imperial and play in any Alliance."

Imperials can join any Alliance, not every race. Chill people!

P.S I DEMAND TO KNOW THE IMPERIAL PASSIVES PRIOR TO BEING FORCED SPENDING CASH IN A MUST RACE FOR THE SAKE OF THEORYCRAFTED MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY

I typically don't purchase limited or special editions of games, but ZoS offering an entire race in it is clever from a marketing standpoint. Probably will end up buying that... the tricky fetchers.

And while playing any race on any faction is sort of dodgy due to all their lore explanations so far, I'm actually glad for it as it's more akin with the racial freedom of the main series of games.

Random Note: The big monster in the cinematic reminded me of a Diabloesque creature (game).


Character Profiles:
Endaros Ilmori - Buoyant Armiger
Sunrio - Aldmeri Justiciar

Taren Jucanis - Imperial Deserter (Used for The Black Shroud RP)

It does say 'play as any race in any alliance' unless I'm misreading it

Nope.

I'm irritated by it, if they demark the Alliances based on racial and provincial grounds then suddenly anyone can play anything, what reason would the Ebonheart Pact have to trust a Breton or an Altmer? Why would the Dominion allow humans to join en-mass? If they had done this from the beginning and created alliances of pure ideology, (Stormcloak/Imperial) then it might work, but they didn't.

I have no interest in being an imperial, although the horse would be nice, so standard version for me. I am disappointed in the any race any alliance though, I don't want to see Bretons in the AD or Atmer in EP (probably will judge players who do that ;))

Wut.

Also yeah it doesn't matter, any pre-order goes, it's basically making it a huge free-for-all. How does that make sense? Then what's the point of the whole "alliance-pride"? I don't get it :| Not only does it make no sense lore-wise, it's also just... cheap.
